Top 5: Ballon d'Or snubs (6)

Published 12 Comments

Santi Cazorla | Arsenal

The Spaniard had a direct hand in 23 Arsenal Premier League goals last season, so he's another that deserves a spot if Eden Hazard does.

Similarly, he had a more influential campaign last term than Manchester City's Yaya Toure - and the Ivorian is also on the shortlist. He managed just six league goals and five assists as City finished second.

Cazorla put up similar numbers to the likes of Ozil, Hazard, Mata, Reus, Robben and Andres Iniesta. He might not be as high profile a name, but he still deserves respect for his individual contribution.
